Abstract [en]

As a follow-up to the heated discussion in the mid 90s on how to define agents, we have done a study of how the concept is actually used today. All full papers published in a recent proceedings of the largest agent conference have been classified according to a number of agent properties. These properties have been derived from agent definitions found in well-known text books and publications. We analyze the lattice of properties with respect to the classification and propose new definitions that better match the actual use.

Abstract [sv]

Då agentområdet fortfarande lider av en viss begreppsförvirring gällande vad en agent egentligen är, så har vi genomfört en omfattande kartläggning av hur begreppet användes vid en av de senaste stora agentkonferenserna. Ett stort antal artiklar gicks igenom och dess agenter klassificerades med avseende på vilka egenskaper de uppvisade.
